The inevitable happened-i'm properly sick. I have a runny nose, cough, and my regular fatigue on top of that isn't helping either.
One of the advantages of my current role is the ability to work from home if need be. Just today my access request was completed to give me access to working from home. I tested it out today. It took a little while for me to get registered and figure out what to do, but I managed to get everything done.
Another advantage of my current role is the ease with which I can simply let my manager know that I need to rest and therefore will be coming into work later on in the day. Assuming there aren't any matters of specific urgency, it's great having such flexibility.
Now, time to go and get my fill of my fluids.
